the tragedy to criticize the president's foreign policy agenda. >> i think president obama has demonstrated a lack of clarifity to a foreign policy. my foreign policy has three branches. >> the only spesty we have is a repeated mantra regarding confidence, clarity and resolve. it is worth noting that if this latest line of attack is aimed at winning romney undecided voters the international stage is not one where he has thus far proven himself to be the greatest actor. previous performances have included calling russia our number one geopolitical foe, alienating much of the united kingdom during the olympics in london, undermining sensitive bilateral negotiations over chinese dissident and failing to mention the war in afghanistan during his convention speech. john heilemann, i turn to you first on this. i think a lot of us were sort of taken aback at the back and forth between the romney campaign and i guess the white house, more specifically as far as the romney campaign and how they've handled this, it seems to be moves that are nakedly political and i think to some degree sort of shocki

to make up for tax cuts of the highest income earners. the one difference is obama's plan will raise revenue as well. if your vision of america is a country split between a wealthy ruling class, with educated people with no better path to a future, then no, let's not redistribute anything. thanks for joining me today. "newsroom" continues now wi. >>> it is 11:00 on the east coast. it's 8:00 on the west coast. we begin with this. major developments in the killing of our u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens. a source familiar with the ambassador says that before he died, chris stevens believed that his name was on an al qaeda hit list. a source also says that in the weeks and days before his death in that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, stevens was worried about what he described as the never ending security threats in that city. also the u.s. counterterrorism chief is now calling that assault that killed stevens and three of his american colleagues a terrorist attack. and there are reports that a former detainee at guantanamo bay who was released and returned to libya may
